Gimmicks. When applied to fighting games, “gimmick” is a vague but useful term to describe moves that seem hard to defend against or beat. Gimmicks have (sometimes not obvious) weaknesses, though, and it’s typically an on-reaction application of knowledge that removes the usefulness of the move completely.

Encore‘s “Gimmick Busters” series aims to prepare you for these knowledge checks, and its most recent tutorial tackles the car-obsessed Abigail in Street Fighter V. “Gimmick Busters” arms you with the knowledge to stop rowdy, random Nitro Runs and stay safe in the neutral, and it’s valuable information for anyone struggling in the Abigail match-up.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
